This is a great minimalist image. Not too stark and plenty of subtle details. The composition and lighting are good too. Always a pleasure to visit your fine site.

the simplicity and beauty of this composition are both equally stunning! you have a great way of un-complicating (if such a word exists) a scene and the ability to break it down into the most simple and most meaningful of elements! brilliant work!

Love the sparkle! and all the variations of sparkle you managed to capture. As usual a wonderful, spare composition, and great B&W.

This is great Ian, and a great location, it looks different every time I have visited. Composition, and keeping things simple are the aspects I have really being struggling with of late, very affective image, wonderful :-)
